When the teenage daughter of a powerful Washington, D.C., judge is found dead, three local black kids are arrested for her murder - but reporter Sully Carter suspects there's more to the case. From the city's grittiest backstreets to the elegant halls of power, wry yet wounded Sully pursues a string of cold cases, all the while fighting against pressure from government officials, police, suspicious locals, and his own bosses at the newspaper. Based on the real-life 1990s Princeton Place murders, Neely Tucker' s debut novel is a pitch-perfect rendering of a fast-paced newsroom and a layered, edge-of-your-seat mystery sure to please fans of Elmore Leonard and George Pelecanos.

Wonderfully descriptive and paints a perfect picture of every person and setting. Engaging story and surprising ending.
The storyline did not appeal to me, so that is part of why I gave it a low rating. Absolutely didn't appeal to me.
Perhaps, I would listen to something again if the story line was better….its a big jump for me to say that.
The storyline wasn't good and the performance did not enhance the storyline.
Frankly, I wouldn't have published this book.
Seems like the headline for this review was the author's goal. The plot was shaky and not plausible. Disjointed. Don't bother!
This reader has trouble reading ahead to the next line to make the text cogent. He hesitates at the end of each line as if it's the end of a sentence/thought. His voice is very monotone.
Just a great story, well told. I was a little bummed by the end but that's okay. Thank you to the Great Michael Connelly for recommending this book. You were absolutely right.
